Fate brought them together, now it’s up to them to make it work…
Having left the army to recover from a traumatic experience, Captain Jane Reed is on her way to Venice to assist Lady Veronica Cooper, a world-famous writer who has lost her mojo. Plagued by grief and sleepless nights, Jane soon finds a kindred spirit in Veronica, coping with her own loss after the death of her husband.
When the two relocate to Veronica’s villa in the countryside to escape the summer tourists, Jane meets the rest of the Cooper family – including Veronica’s brooding son, David. With his own tragic past, David has resigned himself to a life of solitude. Jane finds herself determined to bring joy back into his life, even if it means finally spilling her secrets.
Can Jane and David help each other heal, and find love in the process, or are some scars too deep to treat?
About the Author
I’m a man. And a pretty old man as well. I did languages at university a long time ago and then lived and worked in France and Switzerland before going to Italy for seven years as a teacher of English. My Italian wife and I then came back to the UK with our little daughter (now long-since grown up) where I ran a big English language school for many years. We now live in a sleepy little village in Devonshire. I’ve been writing almost all my life but it was only seven years ago that I finally managed to find a publisher who liked my work enough to offer me my first contract.
The fact that I am now writing escapist romance is something I still find hard to explain. My early books were thrillers and historical novels. Maybe it’s because there are so many horrible things happening in the world today that I feel I need to do my best to provide something to cheer my readers up. My books provide escapism to some gorgeous locations, even if travel to them is currently difficult.
Being transported to Italy is something that T.A. Williams’ books do to us readers. With the past couple of years being complicated for everyone that loves to travel, stories like this one, setting in beautiful places, really help. I have travel this year, yet not to Italy, which is a country I really want to explore in the future, meanwhile I will read this author’s books.
“A Chance in a Million” is a romance story that is as emotional and sweet as one may hope. It follows Jane as she takes a new job assisting Veronica Cooper, a wonderful woman still morning her husband passing.
Through the story we are taken on a journey, discovering more about the Cooper family, specially David – Veronica’s son, but also understanding Jane’s life and watching her picking up the pieces of herself. Connecting with the characters and seeing how they all have something in common, how they are all broken and imperfect, was just what I needed. Yes, they may be struggling, but they are trying to figure out their life and the path to find themselves again.
Following the characters through the lovely city of Venice, just made me want to visit it even more. It’s something I always love about the author’s books, the fact that it take us to another country and show us beautiful places were he set emotional and sweet stories.
T.A. Williams as once again made me smile, dream and fall in love with the characters he has created. And I’m absolutely thankful that I got a chance to read this book.
